    when trying to download your podcasts (the free versions) from my new iPhone 4 I get a message that says “‘eMaccast 2010.07.10″‘ cannot be played on this iPhone” — what’s up? none of the podcasts will download.

    Unfortunately this is functionality that broke when Apple put out iOS 4. I seems to only impact AAC podcasts like mine and only in iOS 4. If you try the same thing in iPhone OS 3.1.3 or 3.2 it works just fine. I have personally contacted Apple and they are looking into the issue. I am hoping it gets fixed in the next update. Until then it would be helpful if you could let Apple know about the issue by sending them feedback, The more people who report the issue the faster Apple will respond with a fix. For now you just have to download via iTunes and sync to your device. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

    I’ve heard about similar problems from my friends.
    Thanks to osx safe mode I did not experience them.

    I have the same issue with our podcast but they are mp3’s, have you heard any news yet on a fix?
